new series

I can already tell by the YouTube comments that OWN’s new series Love Is ____. will be that show that everyone will be talking about this summer besides Queen Sugar and Insecure.

Check out a new behind-the-scenes video of BET’s upcoming legal drama In Contempt. It premieres on April 10 and stars former Survivor’s Remorse actress Erica Ash and Saints and Sinners actor Christian Keyes.

 

In Contempt follows Gwen Sullivan (Ash), an opinionated New York City attorney whose passion for her job and clients make her arguably the most talented public defender in her district. It also features veteran actor Richard Lawson and Empire‘s Tobias Truvillion.
